The Chagos Conservation Trust (CCT) is a UK registered charity, established in 1992 to promote the protection and conservation of the pristine natural environment of the Chagos Islands and to raise awareness of environmental issues affecting the Chagos archipelago. It seeks to do so by supporting scientific and historical research and sustainable conservation projects, often in collaboration with partner members of the Chagos Environment Network (CEN).
CCT promotes scientific expeditions to monitor the status of the marine and terrestrial environment; provides a channel for bringing relevant environmental problems to the Government's attention; establishes links with other groups concerned with reef ecology, particularly in relation to the Indian Ocean; encourages research into the history of the Chagos Archipelago, and; seeks to educate and to make available the results of its work to a wider audience.
The current Executive Committee is as follows:
|Membership Secretary||Hayley Tam|
|Editor, Chagos News||Anne Sheppard|
|CCT-US Liaison||Dr Sam Purkis|
